I woke up with a bad gut feeling this morning. I went
downstairs "Aunt Alice I don't think I should wait until after
school." I said and Aunt Alice put her newspaper down "I don't
think you should either." Aunt Alice said and Uncle Carl looked
"Skipping school?" He asked "It's an important reason." I said
"Take Hoss with you." Uncle Carl said and I went upstairs and
threw on my jeans and my Foot ball T-shirt "Hoss come on boy." I
said Savannah was downstairs she didn't have time to ask me what
was going on. I didn't want to waste any time. My bad gut feeling
just got worse as I got closer to her house. I pulled up to her
I went up to the door and I knocked, lights were on but no
answer. I pounded on the door harder this time and I finally
heard "Come in!" It was Chelsea's voice. I went inside "Chelsea?"
I asked "Ashton?" Chelsea asked and I followed her voice. She was
in a run down small room, she didn't look too good. "Are you
okay?" I asked "I don't feel good. Can you take me to the
hospital?" Chelsea asked "of course. Where's your dad?" I asked
"He wasn't home last night and he's probably out with somebody."
Chelsea said "Let's go." I said and she smiled at Hoss. I sent
Aunt Alice a text to come and get Hoss at the hospital.
"Everything will be okay." I told Chelsea when I got in the car
and was driving to the hospital. "I hope so." Chelsea said.
I helped her inside the hospital "How may I help you?" The
nurse at the desk asked "My friend is pregnant and there's
something wrong." I said and she looked at Chelsea "How far along
are you?" She asked Chelsea "I'm thirty weeks today." Chelsea
said "Let's get a look. Will your boyfriend be joining you?" She
asked "Yes." I said not even bothering to correct her for fear of
not being able to go back with her. "Don't go anywhere Ash."
Chelsea said and I nodded "I promise you I won't." I said and I
held her hand. They did an Ultrasound on Chelsea "It looks like
your baby has his mind set. He's coming early. We can do
everything to try to stop you from going into labor." The doctor
said "Please do." Chelsea said and they had her hooked up to some
machines and with some IVs putting off medicine into her body.
I stayed by her side, her contractions weren't slowing down,
she was in more pain as the day progressed. I wasn't even able to
text Caylee to let her know what was going on. The doctor came in
around two "Miss Chelsea it looks like he is coming whether we
want him to or not." The doctor said and Chelsea just squeezed my
hand and I could tell she was scared. The guy put a glove on and
had Chelsea open her legs "Yes your baby is coming. You're 9cm."
He said and Chelsea looked at me "I can't have him. He's too
early. I don't even have anything for him." Chelsea sobbed. "You
will be okay. It will be okay." I said and I held her hand as she
had another contraction they were getting closer as the minutes
passed by. "You will be fine Chelsea. I promise you." I said and
she squeezed my hand again as it happened again. My Aunt Alice
was in a meeting or she would be here, she hasn't been able to
get out of any of her meetings she is in.
At two thirty Chelsea was pushing, there was nothing they
could about it. I was holding Chelsea's hand and one of her legs
for her. "Push Chels." I said and Chelsea gave it the biggest
pushes she could. Finally we heard "Grab your baby." The doctor
said and Chelsea grabbed the baby and he was on her stomach, they
did the suction of his air way. Chelsea was staring at the baby
she was speechless. They went and took him, they did the suction
of his lungs, and put him on the scale "6 pounds, twenty-two
inches. He seems perfect to me, they were doing something that I
couldn't really see. I was trying to calm Chelsea down, she was
upset. "Miss Chelsea, it looks like you weren't that premature.
You were 36 weeks. Your son is healthy, he's breathing well on
his own. Would you like to try to breast feed him?" The doctor
asked and Chelsea nodded. She was handed him, Chelsea didn't want
me to leave so I watched her breast feed him. "Kyle Jacob Woods."
Chelsea told me smiling at me, "He's perfect." I said, she told
me about the night he was concieved, who the father is. He has
green eyes and brown hair.
I woke up at five thirty and I texted Ashton like I always do
and I didn't get a reply back but I figured he was in one of his
classes already. I put on my new outfit from Christmas and I
straightened my hair, dance begins tomorrow so I don't have to
pack my dance clothes. I put Hannah in her carrying pouch and I
got my backpack and I went downstairs. Liam was already gone, he
had to be at school earlier for something. I get my bag and I put
it in the car and then I put my car in drive without speaking to
anymore. I arrive at school and I see Lauren already and I hugged
her "I missed you Lauren!" I said and she smiled at me "I missed
you too. Let's head on to class!" Lauren said and I smiled at
I kept looking at my phone hoping to get a text from Ashton but
I haven't heard a word. At my lunch time which was 12 and
Ashton's time which was 3:30 I get a picture text of a beautiful
baby boy. And he called me after I looked at it "So sorry!
Chelsea the girl I told you about went into labor. Kyle Jacob."
Ashton said "tell her congratulations!" I said and we hung up so
he could get back with her. I'm not jealous although I think I
should be a little bit but I trust Ashton, and in order for our
relationship to work we need to have trust in it. So I trust him.
After school I went over to Lauren's and we had the girls day
like we talked about. I so needed this, I have missed Lauren so
"Would you like to hold him?" Chelsea asked me "Sure." I said
looking at her, Aunt Alice was on her way, it was six PM now.
Kyle is such a healthy and good baby. "Hey Kyle." I said to him
and he was asleep so I didn't even get a look yet. "Thank you so
much Ashton." Chelsea said "it was my pleasure. I'm here to help.
My Aunt is trying to get a hold of your dad now and your mom." I
said "I can't do it. He won't let me keep him." Chelsea said "You
are staying with us. My cousin Savannah and Uncle are going baby
shopping for you." I said and Chelsea smiled at me "This is all
too much." Chelsea said "No worries. We want to help you." I said
and Chelsea was crying now "Don't cry." I said "but you two are
perfect stranger but you are willing to help me." Chelsea said. I
leaned down to give her Kyle back, and I don't even know how it
happened but we kissed. Chelsea looked at me "I'm sorry." She
said "It's okay." I said and I texted Caylee to let her know and
I knew she would understand.
Aunt Alice came and she gushed over Kyle "Kyle is so
handsome." Aunt Alice said and then she looked at me "You need to
get some type of rest." She said "I'm fine for now." I said
"Carl has talked to your dad and he didn't fight, he said you are
eighteen." Aunt Alice said "Is he going to come by?" Chelsea
asked "He didn't say." Aunt Alice said and Chelsea nodded "You
were farther along weren't you?" Aunt Alice asked "36 weeks."
Chelsea said "He's a healthy baby boy." Aunt Alice said and
Chelsea smiled "I don't know a thing about babies, but I know it
was love at first sight." Chelsea said "no worries, we have an
extra room. I'm a mother, I know how to help. What about school?"
Aunt Alice asked "My teachers were going to work something out.
I go to the same school as Ashton but I stayed by myself a lot."
Chelsea said and I was stunned.
